AFBA CONDEMNS FORCEFUL TAKEOVER IN BURKINA FASO

admin February 2, 2022 No Comments

The African Bar Association (AFBA) has condemned the forceful takeover of power in Burkina Faso, calling it unconstitutional and illegal.

In a statement signed by AFBA, President, Hannibal Uwaifo, the body said that the occurance represents another ignoble development in the chequered history of democracy in West Africa.

He noted that while the Armed Forces may have genuine complaints, using an illegal method to achieve their individual and collective self desires will not only deepen the insecurity in the country but add to the bad governance debacle the citizens are already burdened with.

“The African Bar Association condemns in its entirety this pointless usurpation of power and appeals to the military to immediately release president Christian Kabore and return to the Barracks,” it said.
